Sachets #4

 
Time for a few more of the sachets I have used up recently.
 
The first two on the top row are sachets of showergel by Sante. The yellow is Coconut dream and the orange is Bio Goji & Lemon. Each sachet was single use really. Prior to receiving this in my LoveLula box I didn't realise Sante did body care, so it was nice to try these out. These are lovely gentle showergels, with only a very subtle fragrance. I didn't find them drying in anyway. Personally I do like a bit more fragrance, the Coconut Dream having just a hint of coconut and the Goji & Lemon a slight citris scent. I think these would make great products for children and they are pretty reasonably priced too around the £6 mark.


The Madara Time Miracle Advanced Anti-Aging Day Cream is one where my opinion is really divided. The product itself I really liked. It was moisturising enough for my dry skin, whilst still feeling nice and light. I really liked the subtle glow it gave my skin. Obviously I can't comment on how effective it's anti-aging claims are as I only had a few days uses from it. Where it goes wrong for me is the fragrance, I just couldn't take to it. So for that reason I wouldn't buy the full size.

The final sample is another one I have mixed feelings about and that is purely because it is not the right product for my skin type. Melissa Day Cream by Dr Hauschka is really intended for combination skin whereas mine is dry. I knew this before I tried it, but curiosity got the better of me especially as we have had some warmer weather. I love the light citrusy fragrance of this. It gives a matte finish and left my skin nice and soft. I could get away with using this for a few days over Summer, but I know it wouldn't be quite moisturising enough for my dry skin longer term. Still, there are other moisturisers by Dr Hauschka that would work better for me.


I am coming around to the idea of sachets as they give you a gut feel for a product. I don't mind paying for sachets as it can be quite a cost effective way of testing the water. However I still tend to feel a bit cheated if sachets are all that come in a beauty box.

  1. I agree with you that sachets in a beauty box always leaves me feeling a little deflated. I have used a fair few Madara products and liked some they are a bit hit and miss for me Xx

  3. I love sachets but agree that sometimes you can't get a feel of whether a product is right for you or not as the sample is so small x

  4. I do not like sachets in beauty boxes! It's almost impossible to tell if you like the product with samples so small. Is the Melissa Day Cream by Dr. Hauschka new? I haven't seen this one where I live, and I am obsessed with Dr. Hauschka products!

  5. I am not sure how long it has been out, but that sachet was from a beat box from last September. I love Dr Hauschka products x
